Hindsight on the Drafts

Here's the goal: rank the top 15 players from the '05, '06, and/or '07 drafts. I'm not including '08 and '09 because the jury's still out on any rookie with less than 3 years of experience in the league. My rankings are based on which guy has produced the most and is the best player. Here's my list, with where the player was originally picked in parentheses:

'05

  1. Chris Paul (4)
  2. Deron Williams (3)
  3. Danny Granger (17)

  7. David Lee (30)
  8. Ray Felton (5)
  9. Marvin Williams (8)
  10. Charlie Villanueva (7)
  11. Nate Robinson (21)
  12. Jarrett Jack (22)
  13. Ryan Gomes (50)
  14. Martell Webster (8)
  15. Andray Blatche (49)

'06

  1. Brandon Roy (6)
